(cries) a machine can't give you what a person can. that's why ally has knowledgeable people there for you, night and day. ally bank. your money needs an ally. i'm an expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who matters most to you says the most about you. massmutual is owned by our policyholders so they matter most to us. massmutual. we'll help you get there. begins with back pain and a choice. take advil, and maybe have to take up to four in a day. or take aleve, which can relieve pain all day with just two pills. good eye. >>> welcome back we are in hoboken, new jersey. the water has receded a lot throughout the
for the people of our state. >> president obama returned the favor. >> he has put his heart and soul in to making sure the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. >> reporter: obama and christie on the presidential helicopter to review the storm ravaged coast, touring a shelter for residents who lost everything. >> fema here right now. >> and walking in a neighborhood among the hardest hit. among the surprises, a president not known for displaying affection showed it this day. >> we will get you together. i promise you. promise. you are going to be okay. >> and governor christie, one of mitt romney's top campaign attack dogs. >> give you a plane ticket back to chicago you have earned. >> reporter: went out of his way to talk about his leadership credentials. >> he has sprung in to action immediately to help us getting those things in the car riding together. this is our sixth conversation this weekend and it has been a great working relationship. >> the storm's political map, on the plus side for the president, acting as emergency responder in chief. >> i've instituted a 15-mi
if president obama takes ohio. so we'll continue our tour of these swing states that are crucial to this election and turn to kristin crowl. she is joining us from madison, wisconsin. kristin welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you so much for having me, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. when we last talked to you, you were in the throws of battling this scott brown recall stuff. how is early voting doing? and do we have any idea who has the edge of that in wisconsin? >> we have been very pleased with the way that early vote is shaping up. we have had lines every day in our democratic base areas across the state, we have had rallies and events and we feel like we have the edge in early vote it started a week ago and we have seen lines ever since. so we're very excited. >> jennifer: wisconsin's early voting ends the friday before the election instead through the weekend, how does that affect your efforts to get out the vote? >> we know on saturday mornings we'll have thousands of volunteers out pounding the pavement and communicating with voters to get
campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing and the attacking and the demonizing. we've got to reach across the aisle, bring in good democrats with good republicans and finally do the people's business and put the politics behind. >> we just need to stop demonizing, don't we? well, old mittster, show leadership and pick up the phone and call mitch mcconnell. it's interesting for mitt romney to present himself as a guy who works across the aisle while president obama is being label by the tea partyers and everybody else in the right wing as nothing but the divider in chief. romney might want to pick up the phone, you know, give this guy a call, keynote speaker of the republican convention. governor christie spent the last four days praising the president of the united
for the obama campaign to hit back hard. in the state of florida it actually gets worse. romney desperately needs to win the state of florida and he is running a spanish language ad meant to stoke the fears of cuban-americans. the ad tries to connect president obama to venezuelan president hugo chavez and fidel castro. "the miami herald" reports the romney campaign would not furnish the ad despite repeated requests. in other words, the ad is so outrageous, the romney campaign tried to slip it under the radar. obviously the strategy is backfiring. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the miami-dade democratic party. annette, great to have you with us tonight. i keep saying the bread basket to victory for president obama is going to be south florida. turnout is to important. but now this spanish language ad that's out, what is this doing to stroke the fears and the emotions of people down in that portion of the state? >> well, it just -- i think mitt romney is finally just getting absolutely desperate. it is him learning a little bit of -- him realizing he cannot win, just like you said, w
obama and new jersey governor chris christie are going to tour parts of the state of new jersey tomorrow. atlantic city is obviously on the president's schedule. lorenzo langford is the mayor of atlantic city. he joins us now by phone. mayor langford, your city was truly slammed by this superstorm. the boardwalk smashed, areas flooded. fudge, give's a status update. >> well, i think we're coming out of this thing in pretty good shape, believe it or not. our biggest concern at this point is trying to restore power to 1/3 of our residents. once we're able to do that, i'm hopeful state police will open up the roads into atlantic city to allow for passage of our residents who have been moved into higher ground in shelters outside the city tone able them to come back in and return to their humble abodes. that's our biggest concern right now. >> were there any casualties? >> we had one casualty. we haven't determined as of yet whether or not it was an atlantic city resident. but one of the shelters where some of our residents had been moved to did realize a fatality, i should say. and that's t
: christie wasn't the only gop governor in sandy's path to hear from obama. swing state governors of virginia and pennsylvania were also on a presidential call on tuesday. >> and dana joins me now. and as you said, dana, in your piece, the president will be with governor christie tomorrow in new jersey. obviously, we'll be covering that closely. there is some politicking going on kind of underneath the radar, isn't there? >> there is, of course, no surprise. in this case it's democrats that are really pushing a story that romney would slash federal disaster relief, even get rid of fema, and they're basing that primarily on a cnn debate last year during the republican primaries when romney said that the federal role should be limited during a disaster. he said that states, even the private sector should have more power. now, romney was asked multiple times today in ohio to clarify that position on fema, but he didn't answer. afterwards, romney's campaign insisted that he would not eliminate fema. that may be true, anderson, but romney's plan overall to reduce the deficit would mean cutting spe
hurt president obama by depressing the early vote in battle ground states. the battleground states, nam, and virginia, don't worry about early person voting, not really a determine for the obama campaign. the storm could affect early voter turnout. but the states hardest hit are blue states, new jersey, new york, and connecticut. they are still likely to go for president obama. cnn, jessica yellin, the white house. >> here with the hoboken mayor, dawn zimmer what a day a day makes. the national guard hadn't arrived. and this is what she said about it last night. >> we are desperate for the national guard to come in we need their specialized equipment to get through city streets to safely get the people and evacuate those out of the national guard. >> you have been asking? >> i have been asking. chain of command. >> what are you hearing? >> they are coming, they are coming, they are coming, but they are not here. >> that was last night, we heard that around 8:00, shortly after, you got word they were coming and they arrived about 1:00 a.m. how are things now? >> we appreciate governor ch
he will tour his state with president obama, a president he has praised for his administration's storm response. this is what he had to say to piers morgan. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do is get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he has been outstanding to deal with on this. i look forward to seeing him tomorrow. >> this is the same man who questioned the president's leadership at the republican national convention. >> we need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something. it is time to end this era of absentee leadership in the oval office and send real leaders back to the white house. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i ha
enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. >> obama: at the top of my list i have to say that governor christie throughout this process has been responsive. he has been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. so i just want to thank him for his extraordinary leadership and partnership. i want to thank all the first responders who have been involved in this process the lines men the firefighters, the folks who were in here shoveling out people who were supposed to get the hell out and didn't, you helped to save a lot of lives and a lot of property. our hearts go out to the families who have lost loved ones. it's true because of good preparation the loss of life was kept lower than it might have been. but for those individual families obviously you know, their world has been torn apart. we need to make sure that everybody whose lo
concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. >> president obama and new jersey governor chris christie standing together side by side surveying the damage from hurricane sandy. they have gone from adversaries to praising each other. my guest michael moore. we did cover the rockaway blaze in the midnight show on monday night in to tuesday morning. i was anchoring that toward though end. we were one of the first networks to get it on the air. >> but two or three hours after it happened. my point is, can you imagine if 110 homes were burning right now in los angeles. >> sure. >> it would be another three hours we heard about it. >> no. but you have to take it in the context of everything else going nonnew york. >> my point is that everything going on was putting reporters in three feet of water and seeing how far they blow. and that is not news. >> i don't agree with that. >> we already covered. but when a 18-foot surge comes over in lower manhattan. >> here it comes, whoa! that's it. why do you keep ali velshi in atlantic city hour after hour after hour with him b
it makes our children #1. >>> president obama declared a state of emergency in delaware on monday and sandy has been pounding the state. gary tuchman is live for us. what's been going on there? it's been up and down all day. i've been watching your reports. tell me where we are now? >> great concern for the last couple of days who live here about the approach of sandy. this city sits on delmarva pennsylvania, three states, delaware, maryland, virginia, that's why delmarva. people were very scared. as it turns out, the center of sandy, 40 miles to the north near atlantic city, new jersey. the weaker end of the storm hit the town here. much flooding, cars under water, many homes that are damaged, streets under water. and four bette towns here. they've lost sand. however, the most important news, appears there are no casualties at this point. that is most important part of the story. also important to point out lots of power failures as well as the east coast. we've covered a lot of hurricanes but never when it's so cold out. a lot of people without power and no heat. that's tough. people for
of three bat e battleground state shows president obama with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a two-point lead in new hampshire. just five days left. >> it is so interesting to watch this as we get to that deadline. it's so fascinating. john, thank you very much. >>> back to our "starting point" this morning, it's day three of that fallout from superstorm sandy. millions of people without power in their homes. and as john mentioned, they're literally trying to pick up the pieces that remain from their homes, the pieces of their lives. yesterday the president and governor chris christie of new jersey toured the destruction on the jersey shore right near atlantic city. the mayor of atlantic city joins us this morning. let's talk specifically, sir, and thanks for joining us this morning, about the damage that's happened to atlantic city. you have the iconic boardwalk, you have the casinos, you have lots of hotels. fill me in on how atlantic city is faring. >> well, let me tell you that the boardwalk did suffer some major damage, but property
that are not states that the obama team thought they would have to worry about one week out. >> we're going to go into election day not knowing. i don't care how rabid a partisan you are, we're going to go into election day not knowing who is going to win this. the race is simply too close, too many variables and the storm has a lot of new ones. we just can focus on what we see. one thing we see is democrats are playing a little bit more definition than they thought they would. and if you bring those states in to the electoral college picture, minnesota, pennsylvania, maybe michigan, where republican allies of mitt romney are now going on the offensive, it changes the electoral college outlook quite a bit. not saying governor romney's going to win any of those. they say we're not going to lose these states, it's all silly. i think if governor romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, min
are currently without power in delaware. now, compared to other states, that might seem like a small number but think about the population of delaware. that's a lot of people by percentage. president obama has already declared a state of emergency for delaware. >> rhode island operating under a state of emergency. the emergency management agency is warning all residents to brace for pro longed power outages there. sandy forced public schools in providence and state capital to close on monday. right now nearly 120,000 people have lost power in rhode island. so, some of new york's biggest stars are going solo because of sandy. here's something that you don't hear that often. jimmy fallon will be doing his without an audience. this should be rather interesting, or probably was interesting. as well as david letterman doing the same thing. we're not used to seeing their shoes without hearing -- no, you know what, we're not used to seeing them without hearing an audience in the background. so, the show must go on. all right. as predicted, the damage from sandy came in pretty fast. almost one righ
president obama for the federal response. >> this is the people in my state and when the president does things that deserve praise, i will give him praise. and when the president does things that deserve scorn, i'll give him scorn. and i think people know that about me. but i am not going to play politics with these issues. >> again, governor christy saying this is all about just trying to get new jersey back on its feet, because six people chied in this state. 2.6 million people are without power. this is an area that is struggling to just dig out from under the flood, and wind damage, and in this area alone, now police are saying they're worried about looting and it's been under curfew, at least for the last couple of nights. zoraida? >> it's certainly something we don't want to politicize. sandra endo live for us in atlantic city. >> in sandy's wake more than 6.5 million people are still without electricity, close to 2 million of people in new york. flooded subways mean the transportation is virtually at a standstill. and just so you know what this means, millions and millions and mi
in a malibu state of mind no matter what state you live in. ♪ >>> the day after the devastation with governor christie president obama was back campaigning and five days to go until the election, jennifer granholm, former governor of michigan and republican strategist kelly ann conway, welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> let me start with you if i can, kelly ann. mitt romney a week ago was off a momentum and heading possibly to victory on tuesday. which ever way you look at this, this hasn't been a good few days for him politically. clearly the most important thing is the safety of the people involved. >> absolutely. >> and we accept that. but politically his momentum has stalled. the president has been out there being a president. >> it could be. but i'm with mayor booker and governor christie on this one, which is, it's so difficult to even a talk about politics at a time like this but you have tuesday coming up. you have early voefting going on right now in the states. so the events in front of them, i think it can go either way. people will either disassociate with the current events an
that stood out to me is the washington post abc poll, 48.56% obama, 48.49 romney. i mean, literally, negligible and even in the swing states it's too close to call. i don't think that's true. i think it's true on some of the national polls but they are not as relevant as the swing state polls and you're seeing incremental increases every day in favor of the president. so i think, you know, honestly, it's going to be a good day on tuesday for the president and therefore for the country. >> how damaging, kelly ann, was mayor bloomberg's endorsement of president obama? he's been holding off endorsing anybody. he's been well known to be an independent. he came out very strong and said president obama he believes in climate change and mitt romney doesn't. he also attacked mitt romney for where i believe the vulnerability is the endless flip-flopping. it's not a good thing that he endorses a former republican mayor, somebody totally influential, endorses a democratic president. >> he's been a republican and democrat and an independent. so i guess he has the luxury of endorsing anyone. i t
to people like the people of ohio. >> he's running an ad in this state saying that, saying that president obama made the companies go bankrupt is now -- gave the industry the italian who's are selling it to the chinese. whoa. whoa. as we say in my faith, bless me father for i have sinned. i mean what are you talking about? i have never seen anything like that. it's an absolutely patently false assertion. >> the obama campaign countered with an auto ad of its own to drive the message home. >> i'm barack obama and a prove this message. >> when the auto industry faced collapse, mitt romney turned his back, even the conservative detroit news criticized romney for his wrong headedness on the bailout and now after romney's false claim of jeep outsourcing to china, chrysler itself refuted romney's lie. the truth, jeep is adding jobs in ohio. mitt romney on ohio jobs, wrong then -- >> let detroit go bankrupt -- >> -- dishonest now. >> the obama campaign arranged for president clinton to make stops in minnesota, iowa, colorado, ohio, virginia, new hampshire, and wisconsin all before this race is o
nationally. down to the wire in a lot of battleground states. you need those two points. in 2008 when obama really blew out mccain in a lot of battleground states, it was really sort of icing on the cake to have this superior organization and there's even a political scientist who has done a study and found that obama would have won that election anyway even without this vast field organization. it probably just gave him some extra electoral votes as sort of a cushion back in 2008. >> you say the romney campaign has at least 800 offices -- obama has 800 offices compared to romney's 300. rick wiley says that this is the obama symbol of liberal big government mentality that the obama campaign thinks will put 100 offices in this state we're going to win, but we take a smaller smarter approach, he says, just like we do in government. do you think he has a point? >> well, it's certainly possible that they are just running a more efficient operation, and this is their rationale for why they have so many fewer. obama has more than three times as many field offices in ohio. more than twice as many
president obama gets an up close and personal look at all of the images you are seeing on your screen. he's heading to new jersey to tour the state with governor chris christie later on this afternoon. while the republican governor may be one of the most prominent backers and surrogates of governor mitt romney, governor christie is vocal and public with the praise of president obama and the federal government's overall response to hurricane sandy. that's going to be help that's crucial to new jersey residents because just look at what they're facing. these are some of the newest pictures of the shore. where you can see that entire communities have been washed away, buried in sand or just ripped apart by the force of sandy. home after home, practically washed out to sea, in fact. rivers have just sprung up where previously there was only sand. more than 75% of the jersey shore is actually flooded and more than 2 million customers in new jersey have no power. look at the water still there. unbelievable. six people so far the toll of those who have died in jersey. this is the reality for the
into the atmosphere, that's one whole year of total co 2 to the united states. p.m. obama is committed to going forward with it, that's all of the oil we import from the persian gulf on a daily basis. on december 31st of this year romney said he'll allow all the wind tax breaks to expire so the wind industry is going to collapse in our country even though 12,000 new megawatts of wind have been installed in the united states this year alone. and barack obama says he's going to extend them and give the same kind of breaks to solar going out into the future. the president's epa is looking at the regulation of green house gases and mitt romney is saying, absolutely not. so, issue after issue, one after another, there is a big dividing line between these two people, and for anyone who thinks that there will be no difference if they elect one or the other on this issue, they could not be more wrong. okay? this is a stark difference and it's going to actually impact how many people in the future die, how many people in the future have their lives changed unalterably by climate change here in the unite
but first the latest on sandy. death toll has risen to 65 people, most here in new york state. 29 lost here. some 6.6 million customers are still without power across the region, and this afternoon president obama heads to new jersey to tour the damage with governor christie. >> here in new york city mayor michael bloomberg says it could be several more days before the subway system is running again, but limited air travel is resuming this morning at jfk international, and at newark airport over in new jersey. the stock exchange is also set to reopen today. those are some hopeful signs, but the challenges are still enormous. let's get right to natalie up in the helicopter over new jersey. natalie? >> reporter: and good morning to you, matt. flying over here and taking a look down at the jersey shoreline it's just absolutely staggering to see what i'm seeing now. you've been talking about the fire that we are over right now in mantoloking, new jersey. this shoreline, as you know, completely devastated. the governor christie saying the shore of his youth is gone. the rides he took his kids on
